Blueberry Muffins

Substituting fruit and vegetables for fat and sugar is a great way to add nutrients to your favorite snack!

  • Ingredients:

  • 2 cupsWhole wheat flour

  • 2 tablespoons baking powder

  • 1/4 cup sugar

  • ¼ cup mashed bananas

  • ½ stick unsalted butter, melted

  • ½ cup chobani plain greek yogurt

  • 1 egg, slightly beaten

  • 3/4 cup skim milk

  • 1 1/2 cups fresh blueberries

  • Directions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 12-cup muffin tin.

  • Inseparate bowls, combine the dry (Flour, baking powder, sugar) and wet (butter, egg, yogurt, milk, banana) ingredients. Combine.

  • Do not beat or over mix; it's okay if there are lumps in the batter. Gently fold the blueberries into the batter.

  • Spoon the batter into the muffin tray, filling each cup about 2/3 full. Bake for 10 minutes and remove from the oven.

  • Sprinkle the tops of the muffins with the granulated brown or white sugar and return the muffins to the oven to bake for an additional 10 to 15 minutes, until the tops are golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean.Cool before serving.

  • Replacing the Sugar:

  • Replace half the sugar with fruit puree.

  • 1 cup of sugar, use ½ cup of sugar and ½ cup fruit puree.

  • Swapping the fruit for sugar might change the texture of your treat making them flatter, softer, denser, or more sweet.

  • Choosing a puree:

  • Match the puree with your recipe.

  • Mild purees like applesauce, pair well with baked goods (quick breads, cakes, and brownies).

  • Stronger flavors (banana, prune, or pumpkin) work well with complementary flavors: banana or pumpkin with baked goods with cinnamon, nutmeg or other spices!
